The BVL Southeast integrates German-experienced and German-interested global logisticians in the United States with like-minded groups in North America and world-wide. In a first step, we are growing and integrating the North American Network and providing online-content and connections to the existing German and international networks. Where member density allows, we organize events, tours and meetings. In a second step, we intend to sow the seeds for the establishment of further chapters with more regular events throughout North America. We will work with other interest groups, companies and educational institutions to further logistics in theory and practice. The leadership of the Chapter US-Southeast consists of Christian Halpaus, Josip Tomasevic and Steve Markham.
